A review of Grainline Studio Tamarack Jacket

Reviewed by English Girl At Home on 5th January, 2018

I’ve been planning to make a Tamarack Jacket for some time, but was waiting to find a pre-quilted fabric, which I haven’t seen on sale very often in the UK. I suspected I would have more luck in Japan, and, sure enough, during a trip to Tokyo last year I found that the large Tomato store in the Nippori Fabric District has a wide selection of pre-quilted fabric (and pretty much everything else too). I picked this dark floral print, which has hidden black cats!

Having skipped the quilting stage, I assumed this would be quite a quick sew, but the volume of bias binding to be attached and the welt pockets mean that this took me longer than anticipated. I’m really happy with the finished result though, as it’s worth taking time on the details with a simple silhouette like this.
